Mayday! Featuring Cee-Lo

Did you hear about that incredibly catchy hip-hop tune that was released last spring with Cee-Lo singing?

If you answered "Yes", you are probably thinking of the new rulers of the pop world, Gnarls Barkley. However, the hip-hop duo Mayday! released a song called "Groundhog Day" around the same time with Cee-Lo singing the chorus. Yet, despite its infectious beats, it hasn't seemed to have made much impact.

It's biggest success has been on YouTube where the video has had about 2.2M views. However, that hit count is a bit suspicious because it's only received 100 comments and 851 ratings. Both of those numbers seem incredibly low for a video that has been watched so many times.

Why hasn't the song been a bigger hit? I have no idea. I'd guess that it has something to do with marketing but I really don't know. Regardless, it's a fun song to bounce along to.

Here's the video:

Nice tune. I respect any group with a member willing to rock a beard like that, is he from vt?

You're right. The guy's beard would fit in up here. However, they're from Miami.
